1. Hahahahahahahahahahaha ohgod. Rick Scott declared we need a west coast counterpart to Florida Institute of Technology and so now we're creating Florida Polytechnic, but he's still making sure the education budget gets slashed by 30% and oh yeah, UF is increasing football and cutting the computer science program. I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT FLORIDA, WHY DO I LOVE IT? Oh right because I believe that my vote may one day make a difference and something something hope for the best, cope with the worst.

2. I have been amazingly productive in the five hours I've been awake since my midnight nap. I'm not sure it's going to be enough, but I did just finish my methods essay and I didn't think it was actually going to get FINISHED, I thought I was just going to have to leave in the really bad bits of my "I wrote this while having an anxiety attack" draft to make word count. I am therefore taking a well-deserved break to update this shit.

crazy sleep deprived Panthers/Canucks/baby Panthers/baby Canucks nonsense )

6. We're apparently meeting at a pub as soon as everyone hands in their essays at noon. I love British pub culture, but when I say "we," I mean "the rest of the medievalists." I am crawling into bed with my Kindle Fire, popping over to AO3 and reading the shit out of the lady NHLers fic that people have been posting but I CAN'T READ YET, BECAUSE I NEED TO WORK, and then going to sleep. And then dinner in hall with A because she's very worried that I'm going to starve to death because I've been working through meals. FOOD AND SLEEP ARE FOR THE WEAK.

7. Sanity returns tomorrow. I am sure you're all looking forward to it. Sanity will then depart at midnight local time because game six, but you should be able to get a whole sixteen hours of me being rational and possibly a post about Garrett Wilson and how in love he and Andrew Shaw are, because now that you people are actually aware of and in love with Shaw, you need to know about his first love. Who was everyone's favorite prospect, but now I think most people are more excited about even Trocheck, which, I was the loneliest Trocheck fan for like six months until Wilson started to SUCK and people began realizing how perfect Troch is (other than the whole growing up a Pens fan, but they can't all be Logan Shaw!) ...okay, maybe sanity won't return. WHATEVER. You wouldn't know what to do if I wasn't posting disjointed rambles about the obsession of the week. You'd be worried someone was wearing me as a skinsuit.
candesco: keaton ellerby and jason garrison! :D (ellerby!)
Shit I am losing my mind over: Booth's Joe Louis debut! He's never played there and his favorite memory took place there and it's Booth, so I'm basically always losing my mind. And also, the one and only Stephen Weiss set the franchise's record for games played tonight and this has a bunch of great quotes from Dineen and Matthias. Matthias wanting to be Weiss is SO GREAT. I can't even. And there is this article from when Weiss made his debut. Also, like six Rampage guys (including Keith Seabrook) got Twitter in the past couple of days and they are all so amazing and creepers about each other.

My meeting with my supervisor today was amazing. We hammered out the chapters for my dissertation and I'm going to do the huge evidence collection in the next couple of weeks and then I can get on the fun business of my lit review and my close reading section. He laughed at me when I told him it was way easier to procrastinate when I was a lit major. Look, I got to write twenty pages off of three sources back then. I need three sources a PARAGRAPH these days. Wretched.

I am bootstrapping myself the fuck out of my anxiety. It's been ... weird. My anxiety is very much just "NO, I CAN'T" in a kind of white noise way and no one seems to understand that it's not actually motivated by specific fears. It's just this overwhelming feeling of imperfection. And so I tell myself I'm a worthless human being and then I go and get on with doing shit. It is not the healthiest thing, but neither is listening to a playlist that consists of nothing but Surgery, Just Fishin', Friend of the Devil, Blackbird, and Amazing Grace, and I'm doing that ... too much. (Surgery reminds me of my uncle like nothing else, Just Fishin' is a horrible song but kills me every time, Friend of the Devil was my dad's song, and then Blackbird and Amazing Grace are what we played at the funerals. So. Yeah.)

Homework now. ♥ (And then possibly more writing on a thing where Ells and Carey hang out and make fun of each other? Idk. It's a thing that's happening in my googledocs right now.)

So last night I had a panic attack because I realized my already scheduled stuff conflicts with going and being a show pony for my grandparents at a fancy event while I'm home. And then my grandpa had to calm me down. It was very nice of him. They were more upset that the people had scheduled it with such short notice than that I wasn't going to be able to be there. ♥ This did mean that I didn't sleep well and may have woken up screaming at about four in the morning, so here's hoping I wasn't as loud as I thought I was because I don't want to have that conversation with the people next door.

Now that I think about it, though, I think I may have woken up screaming after having a dream where I debated educational justice with hockey players. That's probably the only reaction anyone should've had.

I need to go frantically do work, but first, here are some things that are making me happy right now. Because, whatever, there's some holiday shit going down.

Loads of medievalhistorianryangosling, two things of the AREDHEL OF MY HEART, assorted valentine's shit from tumblr, fuzzy animals, and also David Booth with a puppy! )

[This used to be an entire paragraph of me being a crazy person about Booth-Richards-Bergenheim. I deleted it. You're welcome. As always, feel free to talk about Mike Richards at me if you want to see batshit!Angie, probably with lots of capslock.]

Today I learned how to run online elections for my college! It was very exciting! However, as a Floridian, I am somewhat concerned about the sanity of the people who approved my position as the returning officer. Don't they know what happens when you let Florida run elections? BAD THINGS INVARIABLY HAPPEN. Amendment 2, George Bush twice somehow, Rick Scott, Marco fucking Rubio...

Whatever. There's a new article about Bjugstad and Rau and it makes everything better. Oh, Bjugs. "I made sure I gave him a hard time about coming here. ... I was all over him and thankfully he chose here." They are the best babies.

And here. Have links to the best of the Ask The Cats videos so far this season:
The one where Versteeg quotes Dan Marino and Clemmer is possibly the only one with taste. (Favorite movie lines.)
The one where Versteeg thinks he looks like Ryan Gosling and Soupy embraces his role as the unattractive ginger of the bunch. (Celebrity look-a-likes.)
The one where Kulikov's theme song is about going down on a girl in a car. (Theme songs. Versteeg's is Glamorous, just so you know.)
The one where Versteeg is really excited about mustard. (Replacements for the turkey at Thanksgiving.)
The one where Booth is really excited about going to the playoffs. ;___; (What are you looking forward to most about the season?)
